Ignite provides onsite business support and space for me to work, meet new people and also creates opportunities to work collaboratively. I enjoyed working from home but really missed being in the office and collaborating with others. Ignite is a great space for our business community to flourish and learn from each other. This could be helping someone develop their creative portfolio for a job or just teaching a new skill.
It is a venue that is reflective of my design ethos, which is all about collaboration and togetherness to create amazing user experiences for all. It also facilitates the opportunity to create an organic network with other entrepreneurs. Conversations around the coffee bar can throw up all kinds of opportunities for shared wisdom, and further connection. Starting out on your own can feel a little isolating at times, and a facility like this is a true gift.
Ignite is an invaluable asset to the city of Wolverhampton. It will allow start-ups to meet clients in a professional working space without the need to pay high fees for an office – which most start-ups simply cannot afford to. It will provide entrepreneurs with the support and guidance they need and is going to enable start-ups in Wolverhampton to thrive.
